Domoto Tsuyoshi is a Japanese singer, actor, singer-songwriter, composer, lyricist, television personality, writer, and illustrator. Along with Domoto Koichi, he is a member of KinKi Kids, which is a Japanese duo under the management of Johnny & Associates.

Born in Nara, Domoto joined the Japanese talent agency Johnny & Associates at the age of 12 after his mother sent in his application without his knowledge. Domoto and his bandmate Koichi Domoto first worked together as back dancers for Hikaru Genji, who were holding a concert at Yokohama Arena, and has since then been partnered up for magazine photoshoots, music acts, and drama projects. The duo starred in their first drama together called Ningen Shikkaku in 1994, in which Domoto was awarded Best Newcomer in the Television Drama Academy Awards.

Together with Koichi Domoto, he eventually made his debut in 1997 as KinKi Kids with a double release of a single "Garasu no Shunen" and an album A Album, both of which went on to sell more than a million copies.

On May 29, 2002, Domoto released his first solo single "Machi/Dekiai Logic", in which Domoto penned and composed all the tracks himself. In 2006, Domoto had begun to release his solo work under the project name Endlicheri Endlicheri. However, he renamed his solo project from Endlicheri Endlicheri to 244 Endli-x (pronounced "Tsuyoshi Endorikkusu") in 2008. He announced that he would go on his first concert tour as 244 Endli-x soon after, which began on March 29, 2008, at the Yokohama Arena and ended in Sendai on May 8, 2008. Domoto once again changed his solo project name in 2009 to Tsuyoshi and simultaneously released a single and an album on April 10, 2009. In the same year, he released another single "Rain" on September 9, which topped the Oricon Single Weekly Charts.

After more than one year and a half, Domoto finally released his 9th single on April 6, 2011, titled "Eni wo Yuite" which The track was recorded at shrines believed to have connections to Nara's entertainment and music industries, is a love song to Japan.

KinKi Kids released their 46th single "The Story of Us" on January 18, 2023, which topped the Oricon weekly chart and furthered the duo's Guinness record of "Most consecutive Japanese No.1 singles from debut" (46) and "Most consecutive years with a Japanese No.1 single" (27 years).
